      Easy to play, lots of music, songs and hymns to play
      Would recommend to anyone who is involved at church music, choir leader or organist, even to play for pleasure
      It is not very good designed to read the music as it is too big and too tight to keep the page open.
      I had to ripp the book apart to read and play the music
      Think they have to change the design!!

      All favourites are there
      Book and therefore the music is too small and impossible to keep open at a particular page due to binding . All in all rather disappointing considering the price.

      I recently purchased The Easy-to-play Hymn Book, which actually comprises 459 favourite hymns and worship songs. As an amateur organist at my local church and currently studying for organ Grades with the Associated Board, I find this hymn book extremely useful. All of the key signatures are fairly easy - one flat or sharp, or two flats or sharps (or in C major - no sharps or flats) which makes playing the hymns relatively easy, but with occasional chords throughout so that the music sounds harmonious and full enough and not too basic or "thin". The other thing I find useful with this simplified version of well-known hymns is that, as stated in the Forward at the front of the book, "it contains enough pieces - 459 in all - to accompany a full programme of services" and is appropriately indexed, too. Unlike many "Easy-to-play" hymn books which contain only a brief selection i.e. 20 or 30 hymns, this book contains enough choice for the whole church year. Furthermore, owing to the simple arrangements, it is easier to add in some pedalling doubling up the bass clef for both the left hand tenor part and bass pedal notes - this greatly helps beginner organists to gain confidence using pedals whilst keeping up with a congregation, which can often be daunting when using the more complicated arrangements in regular hymnbooks.

      Very comprehensive selection of hymns arranged to be comfortably playable by less advanced players.

      The hymn is very good and will be a great help to me. The only problem is that it will not stay open at the desired page and I am having to hold it open with bulldog clips. A spiral bound version would be more helpful.
